On the move again!

Making our way south, we left Black Point and moved another 15 miles south to Cave Cay, where we anchored on the western edge of the cay. Cave Cay and Musha Cay to the south abut the Cave Cay Cut, where we plan to depart for George Town if the weather cooperates. Both islands are gorgeously remote; Musha Cay has a private, very exclusive resort on its western side and visits ashore are by private invitation only. The resort, Copperfield Bay, is owned by David Copperfield, and judging from what we saw, guests are flown in by seaplane or brought to the island by private yacht. Stunning cottages dot the picturesque palm tree-lined shoreline and beach area. Pretty sure the resort is out of our price range, but at least we had the opportunity to share its amazing beauty from the decks of Equinox!

Just north of where we anchored off Cave Cay, there is a beautifully protected cove with high bluffs all around with a marina inside. It has first-class floating piers and some other basic amenities. We thought it was closed, but came to find out it’s a privately owned island, so the owner doesn’t advertise the marina’s presence. It was open to those who inquired, and we met some other cruisers there at the marina, Donato and Bonnie, who invited us aboard their boat for a sundowner, along Dick and Carole off Heron in the slip next door. Turns out Dick and Carole both worked for Kadey-Krogen some years ago, so have many good friends within the ranks of Krogen owners and staff. Small world indeed!! We enjoyed meeting and chatting with them before we headed back to Equinox for dinner and a good night’s sleep. We're cruising offshore tomorrow!
